A bit about me:
I live in southeatern Indiana. I will call myself a half assed homesteader, because I work full time elsewhere to make eds meet. And I rey on alot of other modern conveniences that one could live without, but its so much easier with them.

If it costs more than I want to pay,I do without it. If I can make it or build it, I do it myself. I grow my own garden, get deer and wild game for meat. A modern pioneer:) Lol
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Browned deer burger, slow cooked with homegrown sweet corn, green beans, and limabeans, with homemade corn bread

Hi, Matt. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you found us—although my mouth is watering over your deer burger with HOMEGROWN sweet corn, beans, and cornbread, and it’s nowhere near lunchtime yet. Sounds like you’re a pro at figuring out how to do things yourself. I hope you’ll be game for sharing photos and descriptions of some of your projects in our member blog, The Stew. Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!

Heya, Matt. There's a lot here—but it can take a while to learn your way around, and we're always in the process of trying to streamline and clarify. If you find yourself bumping your head against anything, or if you have suggestions for improvements, please yell! We love feedback.
